Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 thick-cut strips bacon, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 cup feta, crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  • On a baking sheet, toss the asparagus with 1 tablespoon of the oil and the salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast until the asparagus is tender, 10 to 13 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain, reserving 3 tablespoons of the bacon drippings.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the bacon drippings, mustard, vinegar, honey and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil until combined.

  • To assemble: Plate the asparagus. Sprinkle with bacon and feta, and drizzle with Dijon dressing. Finish with flaky sea salt. Serve warm.
